Papa Doo Run Run to Play El Campanil February 19


Surf and Classic Rock Band includes Former Members of The Beach Boys

Formed in 1965, the now legendary California band, PAPA DOO RUN RUN, quickly discovered their forté – they could sound just like the Beach Boys! That sound caught the attention of surf music icons, Jan & Dean, and from 1976-80 PDRR toured North America as opening act and back-up band with the celebrated duo. In 1981, PDRR graduated from J&D to the Beach Boys, and performed and recorded with members of that band throughout the …next two decades. The group also had an unprecedented 15-year run as the “Celebrity House Band” at Disneyland from 1975-90! In the mid 80’s Papa Doo became the kings of corporate entertainment, performing at up to 150 corporate events a year, worldwide! Their fun packed show is still a favorite of dozens of Fortune 500 companies.

PDRR’s first major record release, “Be True To Your School” (RCA, 1975), made the Billboard Hot 100 nationally and reached No. 1 in California.

Here’s how they describe themselves…”Not exactly a ‘tribute band’. We’ve got 10 albums out, three gold records, and a Grammy nomination. Plus we’ve all played with the Beach Boys. One of our guys was in the BBs for 10 years and another for 20. We don’t try to act or dress like the BBs, we just do their songs. We’re known for sounding like the them, but BBs songs are only about one-third of what we do. We also sound like Frankie Valli, the Beatles, Doobies, Creedence, and other classic rock acts. More like a tribute to the 60’s.”
